BIDEN-HARRIS STUDENT LOAN FORGIVENESS UPDATES
Biden-Harris Administration Continues Fight for Student Debt Relief for Millions of Borrowers, Extends Student Loan Repayment Pause
U.S. Department of Education released this Press Release on 11/22/2022
The U.S. Department of Education announced an extension of the pause on student loan repayment, interest, and collections. The extension will alleviate uncertainty for borrowers as the Biden-Harris Administration asks the Supreme Court to review the lower-court orders that are preventing the Department from providing debt relief for tens of millions of Americans. Payments will resume 60 days after the Department is permitted to implement the program or the litigation is resolved, which will give the Supreme Court an opportunity to resolve the case during its current Term. If the program has not been implemented and the litigation has not been resolved by June 30, 2023 – payments will resume 60 days after that. Read the full press release found here.
What does this mean for you? The pause on student loan repayment, interest, and collections is extended until June 30th, 2023. Payments on any student loans will restart following this date.
The Biden-Harris Administration is still fighting for the student loan forgiveness program. If you have applied for student loan forgiveness, continue to check for updates between now and the June 30th cut-off.

Beware of Scams
Borrowers should know that the best source of information about when the application period opens will come directly from the Department of Education and Federal Student Aid.
You might be contacted by a company saying they will help you get loan discharge, forgiveness, cancellation, or debt relief for a fee. You never have to pay for help with your federal student aid. Make sure you work only with the U.S. Department of Education and our loan servicers, and never reveal your personal information or account password to anyone.
